About the Host
One Tough Muther Karen Finocchio
WELCOME TO ONE TOUGH MUTHER! My name is Karen and I am here for you. In fact, the whole OTM Army is here for you. Directly out of high school at age 19, I married a military man and by age 28, I had four children and a toxic marriage. At 30, I decided to leave my extremely unhealthy marriage to become a single mother. With no education, I took any job I could get, as a waitress, a bartender, a mail delivery person, a bank, to eventually sell and voice radio commercials. Denied food stamps and struggling financially to provide for my children, I met an earth angel who told me about a government program for single mothers. The program allowed low-income women to buy a house, with no money down and no interest. So against negative opinions, disbelievers, all self-doubt, and fear of failure; I did it, by myself, as a single mother, we bought our home. While my children grew, I focused on my career. I learned everything I could, especially about advertising and marketing. Within years, I opened my own in-house agency, allowing me to work with the WWF/WWE, NASCAR, The Grammys, Sharon and Ozzy Osborn, as well as cast members from The Sopranos and the Jersey Shore show. Learning from others, I wrote and produced tv commercials which aired nationally on NBC, CBS, FOX and every network in-between. In 2012, on the advice of my children, I started the One Tough Muther (#OTM) advice column. A web critic critiqued me as “Dear Abby on steroids” due to my tough love answers and my column skyrocketed. To date, I’ve been published in magazines, interviewed on radio shows, on podcasts and TV shows. However, as my career and column flourished, I faced some very tough times. Two failed marriages and a devastating suicide by someone I loved, left me questioning my purpose in life. In August of this year, The One Tough Muther Podcast hit the market. Premiering on CBS Radio with co-hosts, Tough Muther Lisa and Tough Muther Gail. We aim to inspire women at any stage in life, to believe in themselves. We want women to realize that the only person that must truly believe in you, is YOU. My life purpose had been found. As each of us shares our unique life lessons and communicates through “REAL” talk, let us inspire, uplift and empower one another. Your dreams are within your reach, it’s time to free yourself and live a life you’ll love. Whether you realize it or not, sharing your life lessons and facing your fears, makes you a One Tough Muther too!
